Celtic permitted 2,000 fans for Preston friendly

2,000 Celtic fans are permitted to attend the pre-season friendly against Preston North End at Parkhead on 17 July.

This will be the first time in 16 moths that Celtic fans have been able to see the team play inside the stadium, after the pandemic brought Scottish football to a halt.

It will also be the first time they Celtic faithful get to see Ange Postecogulo in action at Parkhead.

The club said in a statement said: “We are using this as our own preparatory event, under Covid-19 protocols, which will allow us to use and assess all areas of the stadium. Ticket allocation has been split among season ticket holders and club contractual obligations.”

“It’s been too long since we had you at Celtic Park and we cannot wait to have you back! Celtic continues to work tirelessly to ensure we get as many season ticket holders back to Celtic Park as quickly as we can.”
